Crete - Κρήτη

Crete is not just an island, it could easily be a small country on its own. The variety of landscapes, flaura and fauna offers unlimited possibilities to explore; and the mild climate makes it attractive for visiting any time of the year. There are also several - inhabited or not - small islands around.

Crete -> Chania - Χανιά
Crete -> Rethymno - Ρέθυμνο
Crete -> Heraklion - Ηράκλειο
Crete -> Agios Nikolaos, Lasithi - Άγιος Νικόλαος, Λασίθι
Gavdos - Γαύδος
Chrissi (Gaidouronisi) - Χρυσή (Γαϊδουρονήσι)
Spinalonga - Σπιναλόνγκα


  1. Exactly, a small country on its own. In 1896 until 1913 Crete there was autonomous Cretan State.

  2. I have been to Crete and it is one of the most beautiful islands I have ever seen.

  3. It's one of my favorites as well. I've been there so many times, but each time I discover something new!
